Great American Read: What We Do for Love

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Bethpage Public Library
Auditorium
How do our favorite novels reflect what we do for love? From classic romance to family dramas, from unrequited passion to unforgettable first love, we take a look at our best-loved books that feature the most important emotion in our lives. And we examine why we are drawn to these stories.

PBS is on a mission to discover America’s favorite novel. Everybody gets to vote from a list of 100 finalists! Every Wednesday throughout October at 2:00 PM in the auditorium, we will be showing one of five one-hour documentary themed episodes as The Great American Read campaign heats up. These five entertaining and thought-provoking one-hour documentaries are designed to take a deeper dive into a range of books on our list which, while different in some ways, are connected by a common theme versus a literary genre or time period.  By approaching the books in this manner, we give viewers a broader perspective on why these novels matter to us on a personal level.

A family lives in complete silence to avoid being eaten by creatures that hunt through sound. They all communicate through sign language, and must outsmart the blind monsters in order to survive. A Quiet Place artfully plays on elemental fears with a ruthlessly intelligent creature feature that’s as original as it is scary, and establishes director John Krasinski as a rising talent.
